"Enloe blends a sharp analytical eye with an attention to real people's lives. She examines the structural forces that militarize our lives, but does not overlook the role of the individual in either advancing or resisting militarization."Jennifer Turpin, coeditor of The Women and War Reader

"Cynthia Enloe here rethinks the global militarization of women's lives that she first confronted in her now-classic Does Khaki Become You? With her customary insight, sensitivity, and eloquence, Enloe helps us to see the connections among diverse groups of women in every corner of the world. If her unravelling of the process of militarization can make frightening reading, at the same time she holds out hope by showing that demilitarization, like its opposite, comes about through concrete acts and decisions."Leila J. Rupp, author of Worlds of Women
